New Dino Club launched at Museum

Dino ClubDorset County Museum is launching a brand new Dino Club this summer. Especially for children aged four to eight years old, the club will be held in the Museum’s Jurassic Coast Gallery and will be all about dinosaurs.

The first session will be held at 10.30am on Tuesday 7 August and after that on 14, 21 and 28 August. Activities will include model-making, working with clay, investigating a Dino-Discovery box and making a fact file. Each week the club will concentrate on a different dinosaur – the first one will be the Pliosaur.

“We’ve had a lot of requests about a setting up a club which just concentrates on dinosaurs,” said Pippa Brindley, Learning Manager at the Museum. “We hope lots of people will join in, have some fun, and learn something at the same time.”

The club will cost £3 per child for each session and accompanying adults are free. Each session will last one hour and numbers will be limited to ensure everyone has the best possible experience.

Advance booking is therefore strongly advised although spaces may be available on the day – please contact the Museum Shop by popping in or by phoning 01305 756827.
